Arts Week Everywhere (AWE) 2012 is a celebration of the rich, vibrant arts that abound on the Indiana University campus and in the greater Bloomington community. Held annually for nearly 30 years, this now month-long celebration showcases the diversity of arts on campus and in our community. From live stage performances, music, theater, film, dance, and visual arts exhibits held in some of the best arts venues in the country to improv flash mobs and impromptu concerts scattered throughout Indiana University’s beautiful campus, AWE 2012 celebrates both the traditional and the unexpected.
AWE 2012’s goal is to provide gateway experiences to the arts by bringing the arts and the artists to new audiences—whether that’s introducing a jazz musician to opera, an elite athlete to Chinese paper cuts, an IT professional to contemporary dance, or a philosopher to Caribbean steel pan music.
AWE 2012, which will be held in April, will include:
- A Launch Party Arts Week Everywhere 2012 will kick off on April 1, 2012, with a launch party featuring food, music, and creative works conceived and produced by students and community artists.
- The Happenings Throughout the first week(s) of April, creative works will pop up throughout campus and the community: 3-D projections on a campus building, a flash mob on your way to class, improv singing on a corner, contemporary dancers in a campus plaza, and many more. Art will be happening all around us.
- The Events and Exhibits Arts Week would not be complete without showcasing the grand artistic and cultural traditions of our campus and community: our world-renowned musical productions, performances by students who will be the stars of tomorrow, theater productions including original works and old favorites, and art exhibits of the old masters as well as the new.
